  • Wandered round these tombs one evening (it was very busy). This one you can enter and see the gold artefacts; quite interesting.

  • I enjoyed this place wherein you can see tombs. They called this place Royal Tomb of King teajong Muyeol as you can see his tomb in the peak of the area. There are also three small tombs below the tomb of King Taejong Muyeol which is said to be related to the king. When we visit the place, there are also many tourists coming along to see the beauty of the place.
  • Our guide explained to us that the you can tell from the turtle tombstone cultural characteristics of Shilla. The turtle is crawling confidently with it's neck outstretched. The legs look as if it is crawling fast because you can count 5 toes on the front 2 feet whereas the back two feet only show 4 toes as they are dug into the ground while moving purposefully.
  • The tomb is taken care of well and it's nice to walk around but it'd be nice to be able to read more of the history. You're not really seeing anything more different than you do in the city for free. Behind the last tomb there is a gap in the fence that lets you go for a small walk into the national park. Don't get lost.
  • Not many information was provided unless you know the meaning of this place prior to visit here. It is the tomb of King Muyeol in Silla dynasty. Actually there are two more (and bigger) tombs without any descriptions near there of which I was embarrassed not to say anything about it to my daughters when they asked me what they are.
  • Very scenic with a lovely shaded path leading up to the tomb. Worth the stop to check it out.
